Thereafter, the defense in depth approach remained the prominent Roman grand strategy employed throughout the third to fifth centuries.

Gendered Identity in Seamus Heaney’s ‘Act of Union’

- Gendered identity in Seamus Heaney’s ‘Act of Union’ In 1801, the political Act of Union created a legislative bond between Great Britain and Ireland, bringing Ireland under British control as part of the “United Kingdom”. Within the poem ‘Act of Union’ Heaney draws upon the double meaning of this titular phrase to compare the long lasting effect of this lawful union with an act of sexual domination. Within the work, Heaney anthropomorphizes both countries. He compares the geological features of Ireland to the ‘tracked and stretchmarked body’ of a woman, whose most intimate identity - here symbolised by the ‘ferny bed’ and ‘bogland’ is invaded by the phallic ‘battering ram’ of an ‘imperial...   [tags: dominance, sexual, hierarchy ]

Hence, it is common for most children to embody the character traits, occupational goals, and creative interest of their parents.
